This bill features two plays performed in rep, highlighting the current political situation in Zimbabwe. The first depicts Mugabe and his response to those who oppose him and the second a woman whose baby refuses to be born under the current administration.

The world should discover more about the plight of Zimbabweans but not from watching these plays. (Nicola Husband)
